Summary

Leni Turner

I learned very young that love had the power to destroy us, and vowed never to lose myself to love another. I escaped Texas, and broke his heart to save myself. Five years later, my dreams shattered, and I’m on a bus back to the place I never wanted to be in.
 

Liam Moore

After years without contact, I find her green eyes staring back at me, and I realize how much I’ve missed her. She doesn’t want me in her life, but I don’t know how I’ll make it without her in mine. 

Sometimes, the thing you’re most scared of has the power to save you in the end.

Liam & Leni

Audiobook review

A Hundred Ways to Love was a beautiful and emotional story.
Liam and Leni meet when they are young feeling forever destined to each other from such a young age. Unfortunately Lenin’s life at home isn’t a happy one and after watching her mother loose her essence to love she decides she’ll never love and kicks Liam out of her life. Liam, on the other hand never gives up on her until Leni stops spending her Summer’s with her grandmother. But one day she’s back and so are all the emotions and feelings that surround them.

Overall this was a great book but towards the end all seemed a bit rushed as if it was time to wrap up. Second chance stories always bring tears to my ways and this one did not disappoint.

Amy Hall and Ryan Haugen are amazing as Leni and Liam, bringing out all the emotions and personality of each character.

Emotional

This is a beautifully written, heartfelt romance. Leni, the heroine is lost, bitter and guarded due to her difficult childhood. Liam, the hero, is patient, nurturing and loving, giving Leni the strength and security to drop her barriers and open herself up to love. There are a number of flashbacks to Leni and Liam’s childhood and teenage years, which help us understand their motivations as adults. The romance doesn’t really start until about two thirds of the way through the book, but is definitely worth the wait. The dual narration really added to my enjoyment of the story and brought the characters to life.

Wonderful

I really enjoyed listening to Liam, and Leni's story. They were childhood best friends, to enemies. The story goes back, and forth, from past, to present with their memories, and it's full of emotions. I adored Leni's grandma. Liam made me swoon with his sweet charm. Leni was stubborn, but really just trying to protect herself. Narration was on point, and good listen.

Sweet

Liam has loved Lenny since he first saw her at 6 years old . When she was 14 she told him they couldn’t be friends anymore and ignored him ,she thought she was protecting herself from what her parents had put her through. I don’t usually like sweet romances but I enjoyed this . Never listened to either narrator before and I really enjoyed them.

This was a young love denied story with a HEA. Her backstory seemed more fleshed out but it felt that his was lacking in detail. Narration was well done

I loved, loved, loved this story!

This is a beautiful story of second changes, growth, change and redemption. Set in rural Texas, a struggling artist out of chances and out of luck, returns to live with her Grandmother. Leni is bitter, guarded, and depressed. Never getting along with her parents, her Grandmother’s home was a safe respite. Over the years, her summer meant peace, happiness, and a growing friendship with Liam from the ranch next door.

As she grew up, Leni never wanted to repeat the mistakes of her parents, so she kept love and relationships at arm’s length. Liam is kind, hard-working, and decent. He cares about Leni, but her stubbornness and cool cruelty may just push him away for good.

Amy Hall and Ryan Haugen did a great job bringing this story to life. I listened to it almost non-stop, I became so engaged in the story and the characters. Highly recommend.

Wonderfully Engrossing & Heartfelt! Awesome🎧📚🎧

I enjoyed this book immensely, the story is well-written with interesting storylines that captivate your attention from start to end. The characters and storylines are realistic, easy to relate to and connect with. Leni Turner did not have the best parents or home life, her father did not treat her or her mother well and her mother did not stand up for her or herself. The highlight of her year were the summers when she got to stay with her favorite person, Mimi, her grandmother who ran a farm. She also befriended Liam, the boy next door, and she looked forward to seeing him. Liam Moore grew up on the farm next to Mimi’s and he looked forwarded to seeing and spending time with Leni every summer. The two knew each other since they were 6 years old, but when they reached their teen years, their feelings for each other morphed in to something more than friendship, especially for Liam. Leni also felt it but she fought it, witnessing what loving someone did to her mother who had given up everything she loved for her father to only became a doormat and a shell of a person. Leni vowed never to do that. She also vowed to get as far away from Texas as she could. When she got accepted into Cooper Union, she left for NY and planned to never look back. Unfortunately, her plans did not work out, she did not find the happiness she thought she would and her career in art fell flat. She left NY broke and had no choice but to go back to the one person she knew who would comfort her, Mimi. And the first person she runs into, or rather almost runs into her, was Liam Moore, and despite how poorly she treated him before she left for NY, he still offered her help and a ride to the ranch. Liam never got over Leni and her being back stirs up his old feelings. A lot has happened since she left, including changes on Mimi’s farm. Leni was her own worst enemy, not allowing anyone in and running away from love, trying to find her happiness. She needed to learn that happiness starts from within. I admired Liam’s patience with her and his ability to forgive her for the way she treated him all those years. The heart wants what the heart wants, and he had an enormous heart. This is a beautifully plotted romance novel, there is plenty of drama, angst, heartfelt emotions and a love that was years in the making. Ellie Wade, thank you for this great story and emotional rollercoaster ride.

🎧📚🎧 And for the wonderful narration, Amy Hall and Ryan Haugen did a great job bringing these characters to life, humanizing them, giving each their own distinct voice and personality. They had a complete understanding of the characters they portrayed, sounding believable in the roles they played and just as I pictured the characters to sound. Amy Hall’s Leni was spot on, she had you feeling her turmoil and her every emotion, Ryan Haugen nailed it as Liam, grasped his every emotion too. They were great performing the roles of the secondary characters as well. These talented narrators are versatile voice artists are entertaining storytellers and a pleasure to listen to. Thank you for this great listen.

There is a hundred ways to love

Oh my! I don’t remember how I came with this book but I’m so happy I did. This book has the most sweet young love. Liam and Leni at 6 years old had the most wonderful true love. With the past of the years their love get stronger even if neither of them really knows it. This story makes me fall in love with them in every chapter. My heart broke so many times but the love in there is truly amazing. Everything is so romantic and perfect. Liam and Leni are so good to each other, their HEA is just what I love in a good book.

Listening the audiobook was perfection. The performance of both narrators was amazing.

Angsty Second Chance at Love!

Leni lost the parent lottery, drawing a pair that were unfeeling, uncaring, and uninvolved. This left scars, deep scars that followed Leni into adulthood. Liam had been Leni’s best friend, until those scars made her push him out of her life. Now years later, circumstances force Leni back to Texas, back within Liam’s reach. A Hundread Ways to Love is an angsty, so angsty, rip your heart out deliciously angsty, enemies, to friends, to love romance. Beautifully written and wonderfully narrated with well developed, well defined characters that not only felt real, they brought out some very strong feelings as I listened. I fell in love with Mimi, and I fell in love with Liam! We all need a Mimi and a Liam in our lives! I fell in strong distaste with Leni’s parents. It’s amazing how good writing can bring out such strong feelings and this story did just that and, did it five star worthy! Ellie Wade for the win!

learning to love


This was my first story by this author and I listened the audio version, narrated by Amy Hall & Ryan Haugen. These were also new narrators for me and I thought did a great job bring Leni and Liam to life. I enjoyed this story, even though Leni had such a difficult childhood, but I loved that she always had her summers with Mimi. It was sometimes hard to tell when the story was in the past and when it was in the present , which is why I'm am not the biggest fan of flashbacks in books. A good amount of angst and was happy to have the epilogues that show the future.

****I voluntarily accepted a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review***

Well written but not for me

This book is well written and the characters are well developed. The performance is perfect. That being said this book is just not for me. There is too much new adult angst and I just couldn’t enjoy the book overall. It should be said that this has absolutely nothing to do with the quality of the book because it is well written.

Great message in here!

While I enjoyed this story and the message behind it I did struggle with the delivery. There is a lot of back and forth in years. Some is okay but there is a lot and sometimes the transition back to current time is not mentioned. If that doesn't bother you than this is a good story with memorable characters. I did enjoy the characters. They seemed very realistic and identifiable.

I did listen to this on audio. I have not listened to these narrators before and they both did a good job.

Leni & Liam

Ellie Wade knows how to pull me in and keep me riveted to a story. Every time I hear a book of hers, I am captivated. This is Leni and Liam's story. Leni has left Texas, getting away from everything she hates. Her childhood is less than stellar, and every bad memory is there. Except for her grandmother. Now several years later, she is back, and in the cocoon of the unconditional love she only gets from her. And then there is Liam. The one boy she fell for in high school, but with a no falling in love rule, she ran, leaving him behind. Now she is faced with her past and needs to decide what her future will bring. Is it Texas that makes her unhappy? Will Liam be the one that can hold her there? Will her past cripple her? I love this story for a lot of reasons. Leni's relationship with her grandmother first and foremost. Leni and Liam are fantastic characters, bringing incredible emotion and angst to the listen, but creating a path for them both. And I love how the story folds around the farm. Yes, a farm girl at heart, I am taken in with Liam and his chosen vocation. It's a fantastic listen.

Amy Hall and Ryan Haugen are our story tellers and they are perfectly cast for these roles. Hall is the girl with an attitude, She exudes the hurt Leni has gone through, but builds her up through her voice as the story unfolds. Haugen with his Texas twang is Liam, with understanding and compassion, he is his character. This is a great pairing and wonderful narration.

Leni and Liam’s story

What an emotional and angsty audio and book. Thank you for the opportunity to listen to this. Leni and Liam knew each other as children, grew up and drifted apart. Leni running to find her own path, but some how comes back to where her grandmother is. Where unconditional is at. I dont want to gomto much into detail without spoiling anything. Anyways, Liam as always loved Leni but didnt know how to show his love and she didnt know how to accept it. This is an angst read and loved listening to this.

Excellent ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

This audiobook sucks you in right in the first paragraph, it's amazing. I love Liam and Leni so much, but Leni's journey of self realization and knocking down her walls to let people in was beautiful. This was an emotional rollercoaster, there were funny, heartwarming, and tear inducing moments and I loved them all!!!!
